According to The Statistic Brain Research Institute, “people who explicitly make (New Year’s) resolutions are 10 times more likely to attain their goals than people who don’t explicitly make resolutions.”
Unfortunately, having a resolution doesn’t automatically equal success. A mere 14 percent of people over the age of 50 actually achieve their resolutions each year. This year, let’s be the exception!
We know intuitively that making life changes is hard work and even harder to stay committed to long-term. A solution to help with this is to actively choose resolutions. This means writing them down and sharing them with those close to you in order to stay accountable.
You should also pick resolutions likely to pay dividends in the short-term in order to stay motivated. This is the same reason why placing the easiest tasks at the top of your To-do list is such a successful strategy – it creates a domino effect.
For everyone looking to embrace the New Year while rewinding the clock on their complexion, here’s our top resolutions for your skin.
New Year’s resolutions for your skin
Drink More Water – The most efficient way to detoxify your skin is to increase water consumption. If you struggle to consistently hit your hydration goals there are plenty of Smartphone Apps to remind you.
Cut Back on Alcohol – Everyone likes to celebrate during the holidays but overconsumption of alcohol leads to dehydrated skin and we all know that dehydrated skin is wrinkled skin.
Get More Sleep – Dark circles are a dead giveaway you’re not getting enough sleep. Remember, your skin reacts to lack of rest.
Wear SPF – Apply SPF all year round and don’t forget your hands, neck and upper chest.
Remove Makeup Every Night – Sleeping with makeup on can clog pores and lead to dry, inflamed skin and even acne. Double-cleansing is in and is the best way to make sure you’ve removed all that stubborn residue.
Stick to these resolutions for your skin this year and the face in the mirror is sure to thank you! Be sure to share your own New Year’s resolutions for skin in the comments. We can’t wait to hear from you.
